The Nature of Nicholas is a surreal fable that follows twelve-year-old Nicholas as he struggles with an intense attraction to his best friend, Bobby. Nicholas is obsessed with his friend Bobby. Bobby's feelings are less clear. At times he seems to share Nicholas's fascination, but then appears more interested in making inroads with the girls at school. All this leaves young Nicholas very confused. When images of Nicholas's absent father start to appear to him, the boy is understandably frightened. This curious figure gives Nicholas the impression he is pressing his young son closer to the girls in his life and away from Bobby. This only leads to increased anxiety and fear in Nicholas. Fearing that Bobby is drifting away from him, Nicholas takes a chance and kisses him. Bobby is taken aback and storms out. Because of his shame, Bobby undergoes a type of 'splitting' where a decrepit, ghoulish version of him is separated from his healthy self. Nicholas is immediately drawn to this gruesome Bobby, and begins to secretly take care of the creature. However, Nicholas cannot keep the creature hidden forever and must eventually face his own feelings. - IMDb

Удивительно сложный фильм об самоидентификации двенадцатилетнего мальчика, о подавлаяемых желаниях и чувстве вины, давлеющем бремени общества и страхе перед будущем. Никлас чувствует непреодолимое влечение к своему школьному другу Робби, о чувствах которого что либо однозначно сказать трудно. Когда Робби узнает о ненормальный природе чувств Никласа, он отчуждается и не проводит больше времени с ним. Никлас общается только с деградирующим полуразглагающийся полутрупом Робби, его умирающей гомосексуальной сущностью и со своим исчезнувшим отцом. Сам Никлас тоже стоит перед выбором между своей его пугающей гомосексуальной природой и маленьким домом... одиночеством.
